Jeff Jamar is a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent in Charge (SAC), who rose to notoriety for his role in the 1993 Waco siege.

On May 25, 1982 Jamar met with FBI agents Fitzpatrick, Montanari, Robert McEleney, SAC Ed Enright, Randy Prillaman, McWeeney, Joe Rush, and supervisors Ronald Reese and Anthony Amoroso, to discuss the Halloran/Wheeler murder. Jamar was involved because two FBI informants were being investigated on charges that they had been complicit in the murder. This perceived "bungling" was later mentioned in a civil suit alleging mass mismanagement of the Informant system.[1]


Jamar served as the siege commander during Waco, aided by agents Bob Ricks, Richard Schwein, Richard Swensen and Richard Rogers.[2][3]

He was charged as a defendant in the 1999 civil suit Andrade et al. vs Chojnacki et al.[4]
